Cute little box

I love little boxes and thought I might make one just for Spring.
 I have purchased some records from a local flea market and decided to use the cover for this box.  { I will be using the record soon in a project}  I cut it in half then cut the half into 3 parts as in below.  I also cut 3 sides from the other half.  You should have 2 equal squares and 4 equal rectangles for the sides.  The squares are 5 1/2 inches and the sides should be 4 1/2 by 2 inches.
 I arrange them in a scrapbook paper and used spray adhesive then fold them in.
For the sides I wrapped them with with the paper and added tabs on the bottom to attach.
 I had attached the sides to form a square them attached them to the box top and bottom.  Make sure to crease well on both sides for the nicest finish.  I also glued another piece of scrap paper on the inside to cover the seams.
 Once the tabs glued down I put another paper over the bottom of the box for a nice finish.
 Here it is almost finished.  I put a magnet on the lid and a nail glued to the inside for the metal piece to hold down the top.  I added a decorative lock and here it is.  Perfect for display or great for gift giving.  Today were off to the Mountain for some sledding.    Happy Crafting!
